Shiner Bock Chili

About once a year I make Shiner Bock Chili. It is usually Super Bowl weekend, although I don't make it for the super bowl, it's just a reminder that it's time to make chili. I add the Shiner Bock at the end and it gives it great flavor. Here is the recipe:

1 lb lean ground beef
1 (1 1/4 ounce) packet chili seasoning mix
1 (16 ounce) can dark red kidney beans
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes or tomato sauce
1 bottle of Shiner Bock beer
Chopped red onion
Shredded cheddar cheese
Sour cream
Tortilla chips

- In a large sauce pan, brown meat until cooked through, drain any fat.
- Add chili seasoning, beans and tomatoes to pan.
- Stir to combine ingredients thoroughly.
- Add beer
- Simmer until hot, about 15 minutes.

Top with onion, cheese, and sour cream and serve with chips.
